First is about the search map on the campsite search. What is the difference between the red and green triangles?
Secondly, is it possible to find campsites that aren't controlled by the CC or C&CC? We haven't made up our minds about belonging to either and it would be nice to look at a site and not go through the search and then find you can't stay 'cos you ain't a member.. Ta John

Aaaahhhh...I see. Hover over the triangle and it tells which is CS or CL. I still can't get to any of them though because they say members only.

I think you will find that the triangles are actually tents but if you read at the bottom below where it says 'distance' (in miles) it states the following:
Green icons indicate Featured Sites which have full details and photos etc. So basically the red icons have less information in comparison to the green ones.

One colour is for sites with reviews, the other not I believe, but I can't remember which is which. There are plenty of commercial sites which are independent of either club. It costs extra to stay on a club site as a non-member, but is entirely possible.

You could try joining the Caravan Club for a year to see how you get on, then you could also use the Certificated Locations (CLs), small sites for 5 vans which are usually less than 15 (sometimes as little as 9 or 10) per night. Some have loos and showers, some don't, most have electricity. We use these in preference to the larger club and commercial sites. The Camping and Caravanning Club has similar sites, Certified Sites (CSs). They are not Club sites as such, but affiliated to and inspected by the clubs.

HIya, the colour of the tent icons are not to do with reviews, Green icons indicate Featured Sites which have full details and photos etc
